THROW THE BUMS OUT!!! **Updated**

No offense to BUMS but we need to make a simple statement. And this is an easy one.

From top to bottom the majority of our elected officials have been corrupted. This may be the easiest way to send a message accross the board. Maybe this has already started but I suggest we kick start the campaign for liberty with a THROW THE BUMS OUT initiative.

With a few exceptions, we promote the idea of voting against all incumbents. Whether Republican or Democrate or even Independent. We all agree to vote for whoever is running against the incumbent. This goes from the Congress all the way down to the county school board. Lets send a message that unless our elected officials start working for the people.... theyre GONE!

If we can't elect the next president at least we can get them shaking in their boots! Our movement is capable of effectively changing the outcome in at least 30-40 congressional seats and possibly hundreds of other races and if we promote the idea I'm sure we can find many people who agree with us! If we can grow our movement from 5-10% to 15-20% of the voters we could influence nearly every Congressional election and many state and local races as well!!

UPDATE 1 (6/22) Here's the HOT LIST of BUMS!

Those who voted for the FISA/ telecom immunity "compromise"

UPDATE 3 (6/25)

I got this link from another post. It's a very good description of the problems we face with a possible solution.

I haven't viewed the entire series but I think it's educational at the least. We need to get rid of the "Incumbent Party"!!!

UPDATE 4 (7/24)

The latest Housing Bill HR 3221 Amounted to the largest Nationalisation of private property since the Russian Revolution, the instutution of a fingerprint registry for American citizens and another IRS draconian measure to record all credit card transactions... and Kucinich voted for it. So much for Kucinich as our freedom fighter.

So how do we do this?

Where do we get the funding to make this take off? This is an absolute must but how can it be accomplished?

Can We?

In God We Trust!

Great idea but can we also tar and feather their butts before they leave?

I mean this literally!

They need to be punished and out in the open!

This would be a grand deterrant!

I will supply tar, and those of you on the farms can supply the feathers?

Whatta ya say?

I was refering to the other parts of the housing Bill

Namely the establishment of a fingerprint registry for law abiding citizen's and the cataloging of information in regard to businesses having to report each and every credit card transaction to the government.

Yes I know Kucinich likes Socialist ideals... but if he really believes in the Bill of Rights or the responsability of Congress to allocate funds how could he possibly sign this Housing Bill?

http://emac.blogs.foxbusiness.com/2008/06/27/the-bank-of-ame...

This thing was written by the Bank of America... it's not helping people... just bailing out the mortgage investors, most of whom are foreign interests.

In regard to health care being delivered by the government... spend some time checking into the VA. The help you get there will give you a hint where this is going... a ill informed voter in a democracy is just as dangerous as a dictatorship!

Here's a story about govt controlled healthcare

The Senate passed the Socialist Housing Bill!

I'm sure our disgrace for a President George Bush won't have any problem signing the largest Socialist nationalization since the Russian Revolution... these are some sad sorry traitors to our Constitution... they need to be GONE!

Kucinich was always a socialist, of course he'd vote for it.

Just because he doesn't believe in the Patriot Act doesn't mean that he doesn't CARE about people. The government should pay for health care and housing -- DUH!

More reasons to Throw the BUMS OUT!

THe Housing "Rescue" Bill... sounds so good doesn't it.... just like the Patriot Act. It's another boondoggle! Who needs help staying in a $730,000 home? I don't think its the average citizen...

this bill also adds more redtape for the average American small business and establishes a fingerprint registry! How does that help strapped homeowners????

Just tell these idiots to go home before they do destroy our country before the end of the YEAR!

Caught in the middle?
Freedom is only for those with the guts to defend it!

Be sure to check out Senate candidate Bob Conley in SC

He voted for Ron Paul and sounds like a great candidate. And when you figure the current Senator Lindsey Graham is McCain's shadow and has been a big backer of amnesty for illegal imigrants... it's a great opportunity to show the Ron Paul Revolution supports honest conservatives who will support and defend the Constitution regardless if their a Republican or a Democrat.

Yes it's confusing... no doubt...now you see why the Congressmen

are fooled into believing their doing their job... there just as uninformed as the population. Just ask yourself if it's not changing anything... why would we need FISA? You have to agree the threat of terrorist is a joke. And based on that alone this makes no sense... this bill will allow increased intrusion into your and my privacy... and it won't be to find terrorist... it will be used to collect taxes, look for crimes (NY gov) or help big businesses keep us in our place.

Now Im not saying the terrorism from our government is going to change... in fact it is now be enhanced.

Another question to ask yourself... why would the telecom industry spend millions in lobbyists and TV commercials to pass something the majority of people are against?

Ron and Dennis seek plant based diet

Ron eats mostly plant based diet, limiting meat and dairy. And Dennis is a vegetarian. Another past congressman from Montana, Howard Lyman, went from being the 3d largest cattle rancher in the USA, to become a vegetarian and an advocate of environmental humane policies in farming.
This battle we are having has everything to do with the Trans Corridor Highway and how it affects that precious 6 inches of topsoil of which we are all dependent. It's like the highway is a giant pyramid, and all the pharoes are lining up to get a piece, slavery being supplied by run away immigration and the point of a gun.

And never forget, “Humans, despite our artistic pretensions, our sophistication and many accomplishments, owe the fact of our existence to a six-inch layer of topsoil and the fact that it rains.”

You know, I agree with

You know, I agree with pitching incumbents after we look at their voting records..but this "fisa" bill has me buffaloed. I had a LONG debate with my congressmans office (we talked 3 times) and he won the debate. He read me parts of the bill. He swore everything was constitutional and that this bill was passed to STOP illegal wiretapping cold. The only other thing it did was to have the courts decide on immunity and not the House. He said it did NOT give telecoms immunity. Now I keep seeing all this stuff, but every time I mentioned any of it, he read those parts of the bill to me, and it didn't exactly say what everyone else says it does. I became very confused and still hardly know what to think. Opinion is one thing, but we need to know facts. I could find nothing in THIS particular bill that I could conclusively say, was wrong.
Anyone?

Here's something cool... they already have stuff for marketing!!

Remember the first 100 HRS? The Democrats promised...

they were going to get something done... we're still waiting!!

Check out this page from Pelosi's blog...at the bottom you'll find the 8 things they were supposed to get done in the first 100 hrs...apparently they should have prayed more... or God doesn't like them

Some things should be sacred

Some things should be sacred to all Americans no matter which party you are from. If any member in Congress votes in any way to threaten our rights, out he goes. If he violates his oath of office and votes in any way against the principles of the Constitution, out he goes.

If all Americans could see what blind party loyalty is doing to our country this project could work. That is why we need to approach the Democrats. Perhaps even a few Republicans could see past the Republican anthem and realize we need to do this.

Our elected officials need to start listening to the People. And they will not as long as they think they have life time employment. So this may be the only thing that will work.

That being said and at the risk of offending Bob Barr fans, we can not vote for him either because he voted for the Patriot Act. So even our Libertarian R3volution supporters need to put aside their blind libertarian loyalty and do what we need to do...... vote all incumbents out if they violate their oath of office. Easy as that!

I'm not saying this is the end all idea...I'm just saying this

is an opportunity to get people together. Vote fraud can only go so far... because if we start to work together on common interests pretty soon it will be obvious.

Isn't it obvious that the media tries real hard to develope two candidates and then makes sure to make sure that if one candidate gets out too far in front... they let some nasty info out to make sure it's close.

They want to keep us occupied and interested so we think were getting something we want. But this is an opportunity to ask for something they don't want to give us... using their system!

Can you see the genius of it?
